If there ever was a time in my life to be determinedly in the world but not of it, now is that time. I don’t have to give a rundown on the things that are happening. Everybody knows because we can’t help being ‘in it’. If we don’t look at the turmoil, we still feel it, especially the empathetic ones among us. We’re in it, and how do we be ‘not of it’?
A chance encounter: M – “How are you doing?” O – “I’m doing okay.” M – “How are you doing really?” O – “I’m tired.” M – “Me too.” O – “I guess it’s not easy for any of us.” M – “No, it isn’t.” They hug, one of them weeps, the other one holds, and that’s how people keep on keepin’ on.
Resisting change, forcing change, in the valley of inertia, embracing change – there are many ways we respond to change. We’re inside of a very great and fast-moving evolutionary change now.

This is a battle for our children, for human life and the earth, and it’s built in to us to respond in some way. The question is whether we affect the battlefield if we’re not in the streets or talking, writing, joining in one way or another. I’d say yes, we affect it greatly if it is our intention to do so. As you know, our communications and relationships have great importance, and our responses to family members, friends or even strangers can truly change the energy. When we speak with the intention of communicating soul to soul, we become the front line in the creation of a life-loving world.
That growing light in the darkness is us – it’s the consciousness that we, in ever-increasing numbers, embody.
